Dr. Greg Lisby, Chair
Department of Communication

On behalf of my colleagues in the Georgia State University Department of Communication, I thank you for your interest in our programs and encourage you to be in contact with our faculty. In the past decade we’ve made tremendous strides.

At the heart of our work is a community of exceptionally talented faculty who often combine extensive professional experience with cutting edge academic research. In the past year, my colleagues have successfully executed a rich range of intellectual activities that, I think, helpfully supplemented the intensive educational experiences encountered in our program.

In 2014, the Department of Communication hosted three major conference events, the Georgia Communication Association’s annual meeting, the international cinema/media studies conference, called Rendering (the) Visible, which is a second iteration of the same event three years ago. In October 2014, the department hosted the Biennial Public Address Conference, organized around the theme “Mapping Rhetorical Authority.” As we continue to enhance our programs, I invite you to connect to departmental events and join the conversations that they will prompt.

I hope you’ll take some time to explore this website and to arrange to meet with any of my colleagues in whose work you may have an interest!
